Don't want to hi-jack your thread but here goes
Ive been shooting FT for around 12 months now and decided to try a glove, i bought a nicely fitted one and find it really helps steady the rifle (something im still struggling with) however here's the rub? i shoot left handed so obviously i use the glove on my right hand. This is a BIG problem as due to the sidewheel i need to use my right hand to load the pellet! I have stopped using the glove as its too much trouble to keep taking it off each time i need to load. Ive asked about laying the rifle across my knee to load but i have been told this is a definite no no as the gun needs to point down range at all times when loaded Someone suggested using a finger less glove but all the fingerless gloves ive seen are the very supple type shooting gloves and not the more stiff style of FT glove. Any ideas anyone?
